Sylvester McCoy (Dr Who, Hobbit) and Robert Picardo (Star Trek Voyager, Stargate Atlantis) star in Dan Freeman's (Now Show, Ectoplasm) hit play exploring our attitudes to humour and life. An Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman find themselves in a void and must work out who and where they are. Are they constituents of a story, or is the joke on them? They approach their desolate world respectively with fear, optimism and acceptance and gradually begin to solve the mystery of their own existence and ours. 'Sharp, satirical and effortlessly amusing' (Stage). 'Hilarious... exhilarating theatre' (International Times).
